The Lamborghini Urus Will Debut In 2017: Here's What You Need To Know


What? No V10??

It was back in 2012 when Lamborghini revealed the Urus SUV concept, and five years later the production spec will debut, likely at the same venue, Geneva. Five years is a long time for anything to go from concept to production (if that happens at all, which it often doesn’t). But Lamborghini has kept true to its word and for the first time since the LM002, it will have an SUV to sell. According to Autocar, the Urus will also be Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid.

Before some of you throw your arms into the air and scream "Why?!," rest assured, a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 will also be available. Breathe now. Better? Good, moving on. We’ve long known that the Urus (if that it’ll even be the final name) will ride on the same VW Group platform that underpins the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. Aside from that common architecture, the Urus, according to Lamborghini’s R&D chief Maurizio Reggiani, will look "pure Lamborghini. It has evolved considerably since the concept and the finished car is much better inside and out." No complaints there, but some of you may be wondering why Lamborghini simply can’t drop the Huracan’s naturally aspirated V10 under the hood?

Not possible, Reggiani added. "Turbocharging will be completely mandatory" because the SUV will require a significant amount of torque. Fortunately, Lamborghini is still sticking with naturally aspirated engines, for now at least, for the rest of its two-car lineup. If everything remains on schedule, then we expect for Lamborghini to reveal the Urus SUV at Geneva this March.
